Rep: 10 calibra is on a distinguished road
Default build car with the lowest fuel consumption

hi to everyone
I want to build a car with the lowest fuel consumption its possible....the car i choose is opel calibra 8v (1995) because it has very good aerodynamics (cD=0.26),cd=coefficient drag,then i will do a massive weight reduction in the car,(the car carb weight is 1250kg)but it have 2 liter engine wich i will remove then i will remove all tha interrior that does not offering something, then lightweight racing seats and lightweight aluminum wheels..then i will install a diferent engine opel cdti 1.3 diesel wich have a very good fuel consumption and put out 95hp(the new engine weight is 140kg).then i will install a racing diesel exhaust for some better performance,a racing air filter,and chip tuning(with low consumption map)
So lets see,the car will have a diesel turbo engine 1250cc with chip tuning to provide low fuel consumption,the curb weight i think will be around 1000kg or lower,ant it will have very good aerodynamics cd=0.26 becouse of the specific shape calibra have.
So what would you think will i get an extremely low fuel consumption like, 3-4 liter consumption per 100 kilometers...
(My dream is this project to put out 115hp,curb weight 850kg,and fuel consumption between 3-4 liters per 100 km)
